Battle Angel Alita (aka “GUNNM”) writer Yukito Kishiro has confirmed on his official website that “Titanic” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” helmer James Cameron is attached to direct the big screen adaptation.
I made an agreement about film adaptation of “GUNNM” with the
movie director James Cameron. I can’t tell you in detail I have the
confidentiality agreement. It is yet to be determined by him when start making it and released on. An official announcement will be made after a decision of starting time. Often they will give up movie projects or make it for more than a decade, you could guess that the GUNNM movie will get put together as well as I could. Please pray for quick and complete making the amazing movie, and warmly watch and wait in the long term.
